Folded Book Page Garland

Happy March!  I'm still hunting for a job!  I've had a few interviews, but no offers yet.  I believe the right job will come along when its supposed to, I'm not worried!

So, I've had so many compliments and inquiries on my book page garland that I thought I'd show you how I made it.
It's really simple, the kind of craft you can get done in less than 30 minutes.  You will need the following items to recreate my garland.

1 old book that you don't mind tearing pages out of
Scissors or paper cutter
Hole Punch - I use this one
Jute twine

NOTE: You can find that beautiful wreath in my Amazon shop right here.
Step 1. Tear out as many pages as you think you will need for your garland.  Mine used 16 pages.
Step 2. Using your scissors or paper cutter, cut off all the blank spaces.  This is an optional step, but I prefer it.
Step 3.  Fold the page from one end to the other using about 1 inch folds.  You will fold back and forth like you did when you were a kid and made a paper fan.
This is what it should look like when you reach the end.
Step 4.  Flatten your "fan" and then fold it in half like you see above.
Step 5.  Using your hole punch, punch a hole just below the fold you just created in the above step.
Step 6. Measure out a length of twine to fit your space and thread on each fan you've created.  The fuller fans on th ends were made by putting to single fans together.
Adjust your fans to the look you want and Enjoy! :)
I told you it was easy!  I think I'm going to be making some other types of paper garlands soon, so stay tuned for that!  Please let me know if you make a garland like this because I would love to see yours too!

If you loved this idea and want to save it for later, be sure to pin it to your favorite Pinterest board.  I have a Pinterest board all set up just for Farmhouse Decor Ideas and all kinds of other fun stuff and I'm pinning something new every day. Won't you join me?

GREAT NEWS!  I now have an Amazon Storefront!  If you ever want to purchase anything I'm showing you here, you can pop over to my shop and see what I've picked out for you! Click right here to visit.

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
